Birth: 1836
Death: 1926

"The death of Edward N. Catlin, aged ninety years, occurred at Thanksgiving Hospital as the result of throat trouble and other complications at 7:30 o'clock Wednesday evening. He had been sick only a short time and was brought to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon. The deceased had returned to Springfield Center, where he had lived for years, only three weeks ago after spending the winter in Boston. Mr. Catlin was not only one of the best musicians who ever played in Boston but was a composer and director of note. He was also a cabinet maker of great skill and since his retirement twenty years ago he made many fine violins and other musical instruments of wood. The violin always was his favorite musical instrument and he had in his possession the mate to the famous Paginini violin made in 1742 ... He was born in Clinton, March 22, 1836, one of a family of two brothers and four sisters. He went to Springfield some time in 1863 and October 25, 1865, he married Miss Kitt Shipman. Mr. and Mrs. Catlin spent their summers at Springfield Center and one of their children was born there. Mrs. Catlin died in Boston November 1, 1899. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Walter Baldwin of West Roxbury, Mass., and Mrs. Charles Larrabee of Peterboro, N. H.,; three grandchildren and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Johnson of Utica and Mrs. Jennie Vander Veer of Springfield Center. The funeral was held at his home, Saturday afternoon, May 29th at 2 o'clock, the Rev. E. J. Norris officiating and the interment made in Lakewood cemetery, Cooperstown."
